Kerry Washington looks breathtaking in a flowing blue gown as she attends Twitter brunch at Cannes Lions
She recently wrapped her long-running role as Olivia Pope in the hit ABC show Scandal, following seven successful seasons.
And Kerry Washington used her platform to spread the message of female empowerment on Wednesday, when she attended Twitter's #HereWeAre brunch and conversation at Cannes Lions in the South of France on Wednesday.
The 41-year-old actress looked sensational in a flowing blue striped gown, which was cinched at the waist with a matching belt line and featured a plunging neckline.

Standing tall in a pair of open-toed turquoise heels, she opted to largely forgo accessories, save for a bracelet and her sparkling wedding ring.
Wearing her raven tresses in voluminous, shoulder-length curls, the star highlighted her natural beauty with a palette of makeup that included deep pink lipstick.
At the event, she engaged attendees in conversation, much like she did at the ACLU Conference for an event themed You Belong Here in Washington, D.C., last week.

'The conference, the theme of which is #YouBelongHere, will bring together a wide variety of powerful voices in activism, politics, journalism, and entertainment to reflect on our current political environment and strategize for the challenges ahead, according to the website.
'This will be a chance for our activists and advocates to mobilize and energize ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.'
New York City native Kerry recently wrapped her ABC political drama series Scandal after portraying crisis manager Olivia Pope for seven seasons.

Kerry made her Broadway debut in 2010 in David Mamet's Race also starring James Spader, David Alan Grier and Richard Thomas.
